The Melbourne Residences in Brisbane, Southbank by Tony Owen Partner

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Tony Owen Partner

The Melbourne Residences, is a 20 storey building consisting of 200 units in Brisbane’s Southbank. It contains retial and rooftop club including gym, pool, cinema and dining room. The tower plan is driven by the desire to maximise the oblique views from the units to the river and CBD. This results in a stepping form which maximises the number of units with access to the East. We derived inspiration from the ripple patterns created by the wind. This ripple orders the stepping of the façade reflecting the interplay of the environment on the façade. The tower has a unique undulating façade which ranges from zero to 4m. These facades contain operable glass screens to create wintergardens. These wintergardens provide a second skin to maximise thermal efficiency and reduce energy use. Melbourne street is becoming a fashionable retail address. We designed a 4 storey retail façade. Retail connects the street via a through site link to Fish Lane which is being revitalised by art installations and cafes as a bohemian centre. The clients brief was to create a superior residential address and activate the street with world class retail.

Engineers Pop with Colour in Brisbane, Australia by Studio 15b – Architecture + Interior Design

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Article source: Studio 15b – Architecture + Interior Design

Inspired by an enthusiastic client passionate about colour, Inertia Engineering’s office fit-out is bright and on-trend.  Copper accents provide warmth to the corporate white-blue colours that were derived from the company logo.  The reception area is flanked by a curved concrete rendered wall that leads you into the custom designed meeting room and further into the spacious open plan office.  The curve of the meeting room softens the harsh angles prominent in the space while encouraging a ‘round table’ approach to meetings.  Much thought went into the spatial planning of this existing office space in order to compliment the team work flow while providing a generous and practical break out space for employees.  A whole wall was dedicated to storage for stationery, archiving and servers which is cleverly disguised by graphical sliding doors with a centrally located functional utility space.  The breakout space is framed by timber screening and houses a functional kitchen that provides plenty of storage for individuals and a high bar for informal gatherings.  Comfortable upholstered occasional ottomans are scattered in the corner while outdoor ottomans encourage use of the long balcony.  Combining the client’s daring attitude to colour with our expertise ensured a successful outcome that will encourage productivity in this functional and bright work place.

Project M in Brisbane, Australia by Studio 15b

Friday, September 16th, 2016

Article source: Studio 15b

This home was built in the 1950’s and over the years passed down the generations of the one family. Since originally built, the home had been altered in an ad-hoc way, and so the time had come for it to be stripped back to basics, raised and built-in and under for today’s modern lifestyle of the current family needs. This allowed Studio 15b to work with a clean slate which enabled us to re-orientate the spaces to best suit the northern rear aspect – creating the distinct sculptural M roof form.

1930s Queenslander in Brisbane, Australia by Dion Seminara Architecture

Sunday, March 27th, 2016

Article source: Dion Seminara Architecture

Queenslanders are homes built up off the ground which are often falsely thought to be naturally cool in summer. They are actually designed to keep the area under the home cool. The homes themselves aren’t well insulated and can get quite hot.

Hampton/Queenslander house renovation in Brisbane, Australia by Baahouse + Baastudio

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Article source: Baahouse + Baastudio

Set amongst a leafy hilly area in Brisbane’s inner city suburb Norman Park, Greg Taylor and Hayley Lewis approached Baahouse + BaaStudio to assist them for ideas and planning in renovating their existing 1880’s Queenslander family home. Their existing house is typical of many Queenslanders, whilst they have some aesthetically pleasing features’, the house was hidden from the street down a dark path, leading to a small cold house requiring a lot of upkeep and maintenance to bring it up to today’s modern living standards. Adding to the fact the house was cold and dark, there were many unusable spaces that could not be utilised, and the dining and lounge family areas were cramped and small.

Brisbane Ferry Terminals Post-Flood Recovery in Brisbane, Australia by Cox Rayner Architects

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

Article source: Cox Rayner Architects

This soon-to-be-built project resulted from a design competition to conceive a new ferry terminal suite in the wake of the devastating 2011 Brisbane floods.

The aim of the project was to see if it were possible to design a flood-resilient ferry terminal to replace the 20 destroyed by the impact of water pressure and of debris crushing against the gangways and piles of the former terminals.

The Left-Over-Space House in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia by Cox Rayner Architects

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Article source: Cox Rayner Architects

This narrow private house demonstrates what can be achieved on the myriad of ‘left-over’ spaces in inner cities, such as disused easements or parking lots.  In this case, a 3 metre wide tiny caretaker’s cottage, adjoining a Heritage Hall has been recycled and linearly extended into a family house for parents and two children.
The designers and owners Casey and Rebekah Vallance, two young talented architecture graduates who had topped their year at the University of Queensland, fell in love and married, bought the cheap, redundant lot in 2003.
